2018 Improvements Made

The Friends Of Olde Mill (FOOM) have been busy making plans, improvements and hosting events to better our community. This past Spring 2018, we have: 

Installed 4 new benches 

Installed sandpit under pergola

Replaced boards on pergola

Replaced the broken volleyball posts and net 

Replaced the Swings' Hardware

Removed the two dying bushes by the Barlowe Field parking lot entry

Bought and installed a new Evergreen Tree

Playscape Build Day:

 Please bring your shovels, gloves and wheelbarrows.

Many thanks to all who volunteered to make our spring build days productive and fun! We hung a new vollyball net, installed the sandpit under pergola, replaced boards on the pergola, fixed the broken swing and reinforced the loose handholds on the climbing wall. Check out the "photos" of the day.
